pump which will stand up to the toughest applications.
Check local codes and requirements before installation.
Servicing should be performed by knowledgeable pump
service contractors or authorized service stations.
RECEIVING
Upon receiving the pump, it should be inspected for damage or shortages. If damage has occurred, file a claim
immediately with the company that delivered the pump.
If the manual is removed from the crating, do not lose or
misplace.
Figure 1. Foundation Bolt Location and Anchorage
2. MOUNTING - Type VB and VBM:
Position the unit on the foundaton and level the pump
base, using metal shims, so that the pump shaft is in
vertical alignment and the pump suction and discharge
flanges are level in both vertical and horizontal plane. Base
may be grouted following alignment. Use a plumb line from
floor above to establish centerline of pump and flexible
drive shaft and bearings.
STORAGE
Short Term - Pumps are manufactured for efficient
performance following long inoperative periods in storage.
For best results, pumps can be retained in storage, as
factory assembled, in a dry atmosphere with constant
temperatures for up to six (6) months.
Type B Units:
Pumps and drivers that are received from the factory
with both machines mounted on a common baseplate,
were accurately aligned before shipment. All baseplates
are flexible to some extent and, therefore, must not be
relied upon to maintain the factory alignment. Preliminary
alignment is necessary after the complete unit has been
leveled on the foundation, and again, after the unit is
piped, and rechecked periodically as outlined in the
following paragraphs.
Long Term - Any length of time exceeding six (6) months,
but not more than twenty four (24) months. The units
should be stored in a temperature controlled area, a roofed
over walled enclosure that provides protection from the
elements (rain, snow, wind blown dust, etc..), and whose
temperature can be maintained between +40 deg. F and
+120 deg. F. Pump should be stored in its original shipping
container and before initial start up, rotate impeller by hand
to assure seal and impeller rotate freely.
Position unit on foundation and level the baseplate,
using rectangular metal blocks and shims, or wedges
having a small taper as shown in Figure 2. A gap of 3/4”
to 1½” should be allowed between the baseplate and
foundation for grouting.

B- INSTALLATION
1. FOUNDATION
The pump foundation should be sufficiently substantial
to form a level, rigid support for the combined weight
of the pump and driver and maintain alignment of the
installed unit. Foundation bolts, of the proper size, should
be imbedded in the concrete. A pipe sleeve, about 2½”
diameters larger than the bolt, should be used to allow for
final positioning of the bolts. See Figure 1.
Figure 2. Adjusting Wedges for Mounting
3
Adjust the metal supports or wedges until the shafts of
the pump and driver are level. Check the coupling faces,
as well as the suction and discharge flanges of the pump
for horizontal or vertical position by means of a level.
Correct the positions, if necessary, by adjusting the
supports or wedges under the baseplate, as required.
ANGULAR
MISALIGNMENT
NOTE: A flexible coupling should not be used to
compensate for misalignment of the pump and driver
shafts. The purpose of the flexible coupling is to
compensate for temperature changes and to permit end
movement of the shafts without interference with each
other, while transmitting power from the driver to the pump.
3. FIELD ALIGNMENT
The faces of the coupling halves should be spaced far
enough apart so that they cannot strike each other when
the driver rotor is moved toward the pump. The necessary
tools for checking the alignment of a flexible coupling are a
straight edge and a taper gauge or a set of feeler gauges.
NOTE: In most cases where extreme accuracy is
necessary, a dial indicator may be used to align coupling.
Angular alignment check is made by inserting a taper
gauge or feelers between the coupling faces at 90-degree
intervals around the coupling. The unit will be in angular
alignment when the coupling faces are exactly the same
distance apart at all points. (See Figure 3).
PARALLEL
MISALIGNMENT
Parallel alignment check is made by placing a straight
edge across both coupling rims at the top, bottom and
at both sides. The unit will be in parallel alignment when
the straight edge rests evenly on the coupling rim at all
positions. Allowance may be necessary for temperature
changes and for coupling halves that are not of the same
outside diameter. Care must be taken to have the straight
edge parallel to the axis of the shafts. Correction for
Angular and Parallel Misalignment is made by adjusting
the shims under the driver. After each change, it is
necessary to recheck the alignment of the coupling halves,
as adjustment in one direction may disturb adjustments
already made in another direction.
The permissible amount of coupling misalignment will vary
with the type of pump and driver, but should be limited to
approximately .002 inches per inch of shaft diameter when
final adjustment is made. When the units are lined up cold,
it is necessary to make allowance for the vertical rise of
the driver caused by heating when in operation. When the
preliminary alignment has been completed the foundation,
bolts should be tightened evenly, but not too firmly.
PERFECT
ALIGMENT
4. GROUTING
Grouting compensates for unevenness in the foundation
and prevents vibration and shifting after mounting is
complete. Build a form around the baseplate to contain the
grout, and sprinkle area with water to obtain a good bond.
The base should be completely filled with a good quality,
non-shrinking grout. The usual mixture for grouting is one
part Portland cement and two parts sand with suficient
water to flow freely. It is also desirable to grout the leveling
pieces, shims or wedges in place. Foundation bolts should
be fully tightened when grout has hardened, usually about
48 hours after pouring.
Figure 3

C - OPERATION
5. DOWELLING
After the unit has been running about one week the
coupling halves should be given a final check for
misalignment, caused by pipe strains or temperature
strains, If the alignment is correct, both pump feet and
driver should be dowelled to the baseplate.
1. PRIMING
CAUTION: Before starting the pump, the casing and
suction line must be filled with liquid, and air-vented
through the vent pipe plugs. The pump must not be run
until it is completely filled with liquid, because of danger
of injuring some of the parts of the pump which depend
upon liquid for lubrication. The discharge gate vale should
be closed during priming. Be sure the stuffing box packing
or mechanical seal and power frame are supplied with the
proper lubrication. See LUBRICATION.
6. PIPING
The pump suction and discharge connections are not
intended to indicate the required suction and discharge
pipe sizes. The pipe diameter must be selected according
to the requirements of the pumping system and
recommended friction losses for the liquid being pumped.
2. STARTING THE PUMP
On initial start up, the gate valve in the discharge piping
should be closed and slowly opened after pump is up
to speed and pressure developed. DO NOT operate
pump for any appreciable length of time against a
closed discharge valve, as this may heat trapped liquid
excessively and damage the pump, packing or seal.
Usually, it is advisable to increase the size of both the
suction and discharge pipes at the pump nozzles to have
minimum acceptable friction loss, suction pipe should
never be smaller in diameter than the pump suction
nozzle. When suction pipe is of larger diameter than the
pump suction nozzle, an eccentric reducer is required
to eliminate possible air or vapor pockets at the pump
suction inlet.
The following important items should be checked as pump
is started and placed in operation.
Both suction and discharge pipes must be supported
independently near the pump, so that when piping is
connected to the pump, no strain will be transmitted to the
pump. Piping should be arranged with as few bends as
possible, and, preferably, with long radius elbow whenever
possible.
a. Pump and driver securely bolted.
b. Coupling properly aligned.
c. Piping complete.
d. Correct pump rotation.
e. Pump shaft turns freely.
f. Discharge valve closed.
g. Suction valve open (if used).
h. Seal water valve open (if used).
i. Pump fully primed.
j. Pump and driver properly lubricated.
k. Liquid drips slowly from packing gland.
SUCTION PIPING
A horizontal suction line must have a gradual rise to the
pump. Any high point in the suction pipe can become filled
with air and prevent proper operation of the pump and
may cause loss of prime. The pipe and fittings must be
free of all air leaks.
Any valves or fillings should located at a distance equal
to 5 to 10 times the diameter of the suction pipe from the
pump suction nozzle. If an elbow must be installed at the
pump suction, it should be installed in a vertical position
to reduce unequal flow into the pump, which may cause
cavitation in the pump. NOTE: A gate valve in the suction
piping should not be used as a throttling device, as this
may cause the liquid to overheat during operation.
Only after these items have been checked should the
pump be started.
3. PUMP ADJUSTMENT
Open discharge valve as soon as operating speed has
been reached. After the pump has been started, the
packing box gland should be tightened to eliminate
excessive liquid loss. (Applies only to pumps using
packed stuffing boxes). Packing should not be pressed
too tight, as this may result in burning the packing and
scoring the shaft sleeve. The best adjustment will allow
the liquid to drip slowly from the packing box gland. This
will permit proper lubrication of the packing and dissipate
generated heat.
7. WIRING
For electric motor drives, connect power supply to
conform with national and local codes. Line voltage and
wire capacity must match the ratings stamped on the
motor nameplate.
8. ROTATION
Before starting the pump, check the required direction
of rotation of the pump. The proper direction is indicated
by a direction arrow on the pump casing. Separate the
coupling halves, then start motor to see that it rotates in
the direction required by the pump. If it does not, reverse
any two main leads of the 3-phase wiring to the motor.
The coupling halves can be reconnected and the pump
primed for starting.
As soon as the pump and driver have reached the normal
operating temperature, the unit should be shut down for
final coupling alignment. This should be done by following
the instructions found in Section B, Part 3. If correction
is necessary, it may be accomplished by the addition or
removal of shims from under the motor mounting feet.
5
D. MAINTENANCE
Recommended lubrication systems are as follows:
1. Water from an outside source, such as a water seal
system or light oil from a pressurized system.
2. Liquid from the pump casing (1) through a suitable
filter if liquid is not over 180°F. Heat exchanger is
required for higher liquid temperatures.
3. Pumps with seal chamber may be pressurized with
Shell Alvania EPRO #71030 grease through suitable
grease fitting if liquid lubrication is not available.
1. LUBRICATION
The pump and its component parts that require lubrication
have been lubricated at the factory, except for bearings
that are oil lubricated. Oil reservoir must be filled before
start up. (See below)
Subsequent lubrication depends on operating conditions.
Periodic inspection of bearing lubrication is necessary and
additional grease or oil should be added as required.
2. IMPELLER ADJUSTMENT
An outstanding feature of this pump is the axial
adjustment of the impeller to compensate for eventual
wear or corrosion. Correct impeller adjustment will insure
optimum operating performance and efficiencies.
CAUTION: DO NOT overgrease bearings or add
excess oil.
The following lubricants are recommended:
Grease lubricated ball bearings: Shell Alvania #71012 or
equal.
To adjust impeller clearance:
a. Disconnect power supply to the driver at the starter.
b. Loosen the three lock nuts and jack screws (204
and 286), then tighten the three cap screws (213)
evenly until the impeller just rubs the suction cover
(9) when the shaft is rotated by hand. It may be
necessary to bump the shaft lightly on the coupling
end to make sure impeller is against the suction cover.
c. Tighten the jack screws (286), finger tight, against
the power frame (19); then loosen cap screws (213).
d. Tighten the jack screws an additional 1/3 turn
(2 hex) to obtain .016” to .020” impeller clearance.
The clearance may be measured with feeler
gauge through suction inlet of the suction cover.
e. Carefully tighten cap screws (213) and lock nuts
(204), then rotate shaft by hand to make certain that
impeller does not rub against suction cover. Place
pump in operation and check power draw to make
certain impeller does not rub casing.
Oil lubricated ball bearings: SAE #10 non-detergent type
oil.
Packing boxes: Lithium base grease. Shell Alvania
#71012 or equal.
Double seal: Pressurized water or light oil circulated
through seal chamber. See below for recommended
lubrication.
Driver: See Manufacturers recommendations for proper
lubrication.
NOTE: Under normal conditions, a ball bearing will run
100F to 600F above surrounding temperatures. If bearing
temperature becomes extremely hot, check for improper
lubrication, such as over-greasing, wear, incorrect pump
alignment, etc.
3. PACKING BOX CARE
Pumps are normally furnished with grease fittings (243) for
packing lubrication, unless purchased otherwise.
When installing new rings of packing, clean packing box
(11) and inspect parts for any damage. If the shaft sleeve
(14) is worn or grooved, it should be replaced. New packing
will not provide adequate sealing on a worn shaft sleeve.
SERIES B ONLY: To fill the oil reservoir in the frame (19)
1. Install the TRICO OPTO-MATIC CONSTANT LEVEL
OILER (77) on the frame. Unscrew the plastic bottle
from the oiler and remove breather (235) from the
frame.
2. Fill the bottle of the oiler and screw it onto the lower
reservoir. Several fillings of the bottle will be required
before the oil level in the bearing reservoir is equal
to the level for which the oiler is adjusted. NEVER fill
the frame reservoir through the lower reservoir of the
oiler or refill bottle while pump is operating.
3. When proper oil level is obtained, refill and replace the
plastic bottle on the oiler and replace the breather
(235) in the frame.
Insert two new rings of packing in front of lantern ring.
Stagger joints to minimize leakage. Tamp each ring in
place. Rotate shaft several times after tamping each ring.
Replace lantern ring. Add three rings of packing behind
lantern ring. Replace gland (17) and bolts (209) and nuts
(210), rotate shaft and tighten gland securely. Be sure
lantern ring is positioned to receive lubrication through item
(243). After rotating shaft several turns, loosen nuts (210) to
finger fight for starting.
IMPORTANT: The liquid being pumped should slowly
and constantly drip through the packing and gland. This
prevents overheating, high power consumption and sleeve
damage. Lubricate through grease fitting (243) or by
removal of fitting and substituting tubing and an outside
source of water or oil.
DOUBLE SEAL LUBRICATION
The seal chamber of the packing box cover (11) must be
pressurized with a clear liquid to cool and lubricate the
seal faces. Liquid should be circulated through the seal
chamber at a pressure equal to or 15 to 20 psi above
maximum pressure at the pump discharge.

4. DISASSEMBLY
The disassembly instructions apply to the series of pumps
in general and may vary slightly on special units. If complete
disassembly is not necessary, use only those steps which
apply. Close gate valve in discharge and suction piping.
Inspect all parts removed to determine whether suitable for
reuse. It is recommended that all packing, gaskets and
O-rings be replaced with new ones during reassembly.
2. After the groove has been cut, insert a wedge
tipped cold chisel into the groove at the impeller
end of the sleeve. Support shaft on a V block
under the sleeve. Tap chisel sharply with a hammer
